Teaching The Unknown

As an invited guest in Moon & Jeon's exhibition "News from Nowhere" we present the roughly 2000 images sent in as part of three exercises in our MOOC using an interactive touch-screen application. The app features three modes: 1) all messages 2) a game 3) an exhibition history.

As an invited guest in Moon & Jeon’s exhibition “News from Nowhere” we present the roughly 2000 images sent in as part of three exercises in our MOOC using an interactive touch-screen application. The app features three modes: 1) explore all images with the corresponding description by the students, 2) a guessing game in which the visitor has to guess the location of an arbitrary image from 240 preselected images and 3) a statistics view in which the visitor is presented his own rank as well as the ranks of the cities: a rank that shows how well the cities have been recognized throughout the whole exhibition.
